The Met Ball

The Met Ball. The Oscars of the East Coast. The only red carpet that's reliably fashionable. One of the biggest events in fashion. You probably have already seen tons of pictures from last Monday and  know by heart the guest list but I just cannot help myself. There were so many so many stunning outfits I just have to make a post about it. 

The theme this year was "Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty" and so many of the guests honored the designer by wearing a mix of archived punk rock looks or creations by the talented Sarah Burton, who won the Busiest Dressmaker in the World award for a reason. 

I am quite tempted to post pictures of every single outfit but I guess that would an overload, so I will try to stick to my favorites.

To start with I present to you The McQueen outfits!





...and some more beauty...

The Queen Anna Wintour in a sequined Chanel couture gown. Angela Lindvall with Karlie Kloss, both in breathtaking Christian Dior

 Ashley Olsen wearing vintage Christian Dior couture and her sister Mary-Kate in vintage Givenchy couture. Aren't they both stunning?

 Two sisters again. Dakota and Elle Fanning both wearing gorgeous Valentino outfits.

Blake Lively and Janelle Monae both very classy in Chanel.

 One of my Favorite Doutzen Kroes wearing a breathtaking red gown by the great Giambattista Valli.

 Aren't these two real eye-candies? Eva Mendes in Stella McCartney and Isabel Lucas in Louis Vuitton.

I love the soft angelic colors of Florence Welch's Yves Saint Laurent gown and the class of Jennifer Hudson's Vera Wang outfit.

 Jessica Stam in a blushed Tommy Hilfiger creation and the angelic Miranda Kerr in Marchesa.

Last but not least Penelope Cruz in a timeless black Oscar de la Renta gown and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley wearing Burberry.

Did I overdo it? Maybe. But there was so much beauty at the Ball. These are not even all the outfits I loved ...  So, which one's your favorite?

I love Ashley Olsen's dress. It's gorgeous.
Too hard- there are so many great outfits. Love the range of McQueen outfits from SJP's fitted, shiny one to the ethereal nude worn by Selma Hayek.

An Alexander McQueen theme ball?! What a great opportunity to go over-the-top!! I really love the white dress in the 2nd row on the right and the dress worn by Ashley Olsen.
BTW Congratulations for Links à la Mode. It's great that you made the list. It was a very interesting post!

This is seriously the best runway of the year to look at... even better than the oscars! So many gorgeous dresses. I particularly liked both of the Olsen twin's dresses, as well as Gisele's (who I don't really like that much, but there's no denying she looks slammin' in that dress).
Eva Mendes for glamour, Daphne Guiness for edgy.

Love them all though.

Anna Dello Russo always looks amazing! Such a trend setter. I love that Miranda Kerr went with something short to show her amazing legs.

All the best, Angel
